For this week's interview I am interviewing a blogger I have known for a long time. When I first met Elle we both barely had any followers compared to what we have now and it has been so fun to see her blog grow and evolve as well!
1. Why did you begin blogging?
I began blogging in the beginning of 2012 because I had a lot of time on my hands due to illness. I knew I wanted to start something creative that involved fashion, whether that be a youtube channel or a blog. Around that time I was reading a few blogs, but I was mostly watching youtube videos. I knew I would be too shy to record videos so I ultimately decided to start a fashion blog over a youtube channel.
2. Why did you choose the name Uniquely Elle when you re-branded your blog this summer?
I knew I wanted to have my name in my blog name. I love the blog names where they use their first and last name or first and middle name. Unfortunately, I don't have a very glamorous sounding middle or last name. So I opted to come up with a word to use with my first name. After a few weeks of thinking I came up with uniquely.
3. What has your favorite part of blogging?
My favorite part of blogging is connecting with so many people. I've had so much fun meeting other bloggers and making new friends. I also love that blogging opens up so many doors, and brings you a lot of great opportunities.
4. Where do you get inspiration for new outfits?
Mostly pinterest and other blogs. I also like to just sit in front of my closet and see what I can come up with.
5. What is your favorite fall trend?
I have a few favorite trends. I've been loving leather pants, boyfriend jeans, and sneakers.
6. What is your favorite piece in your closet?
This is a tough one! But I would have to say at the moment it's these leather pants I just bought from Topshop.
7. What is one thing you see people wearing that you would NEVER wear?
A trend at my school right now is crocs. Personally I think they are hideous and would never own a pair.
8. Do you have a favorite Bath and Body Works candle?
Surprise surprise, I actually don't buy candles. But if I do(rare occasion) I like candles that have a more woodsy forest scent.
9. What is your favorite quote and why?
I really love quotes about achieving your dreams, and working hard. I have so many favorite quotes, it's hard to pick just one. But one of my favorites is "work until your idols become your rivals"
10. What is something you want to accomplish by 2015?
Something I would like to accomplish by 2015(holy cow! Where has time gone?) is to grow my blog more. More readers, collaborations, page views, etc. I would also like to grow my blog design business more.
